A decline in cognition, whether it’s forgetting names or just not being able to think as clearly as you once did, can be a scary thing. However, it’s possible to regain brain function and take back our lives. It’s important to start taking care of our brains early, as Alzheimer’s and dementia often develop up to 30 years prior to the onset of serious symptoms. Dr. Dale Bredesen talks about how adding in the right inputs, while taking out the offenders, can actually reverse the devastating symptoms of cognitive decline.
Also, Dr. Richard Isaacson discusses the importance of personalizing Functional Medicine care for patients who are suffering from cognitive decline.
Dr. Dale Bredesen is internationally recognized as an expert in the mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, and the author of the New York Times bestsellers The End of Alzheimer’s, The End of Alzheimer’s Program, and his latest book The First Survivors of Alzheimer’s: How Patients Recovered Life and Hope in Their Own Words.
